On Saturday, we stopped at Flippers for lunch. I had the seafood pasta and my wife had the grouper sandwich. Both meals were excellent. The view of the marina was also great.

Our goal was to get there to see the sun set. The captain of our tour boat recommended this place. It was in a marina. Unfortunately we got there after dark. We were going to sit outside but there was a very loud musician in the tiki bar and just not what we wanted for dinner so we sat inside,... More

Just visited last night, so the sweet memory of the tasty shrimp skewers that were in special served with fresh vegetables and rice, is fresh in my mind. Our group is usually pretty lively, but when the food came, we all went completely quiet, with the occasional audible "mmm". Waiter was awesome, and though quite busy, very attentive. Bartender also... More

This is a great place, with amazing view. Three of us had pasta dishes and they were fantastic, however one had a burger basket and it was like any old frozen burgers.

My wife and I decided to try the early bird menu on February 11th 2017. We were quickly seated (we chose the patio). My wife ordered the Shrimp Bienville Pasta and I chose the Grilled Mahi Mahi and fries. Both came with a side salad. My wife really enjoyed her dish and said she would order it again. My Mahi...

Food was good. The early-bird in off season is good and priced well. But no happy hour to go with it. House wine is so-so and not that inexpensive. Wait staff was ok. Setting was fantastic with views on the boats and docks. It was a little far out and confusing because it is in a residential street setting

Looking for a good restaurant with water view and Flippers delivered! Nice dockside view with amazing yellofin tuna dip, fresh caught grouper, and homemade key lime pie and signature bread pudding. Very friendly and attentive service we will definitely come back!

1st night in Orange Beach, wanted a resturant not far from our hotel. Flippers fit the bill. We had the early bird specials. I had the grilled shrimp and rice pilaf and vegetable medley, also had a nice salad. My husband had the fried seafood platter. The shrimp had a light batter. Everything was was well seasoned. We had one... More
